CONTRACTOR TAKES GOLD AT THE CCS AWARDS
The awards represent the top five per cent of performing sites nationally, with Habberley Learning Campus one of only 98 out of 9000 registered schemes to achieve a Gold accreditation and a fantastic score of 46 out of 50.
The £22 million Campus was a project tendered through mini-competition under the West Midlands Contractor Framework and delivers three schools onto one site in Kidderminster, Worcestershire; a secondary school, primary school and special educational needs school with additional facilities including a science hub, early years hub and weekly boarding unit.
The Gold represents the fantastic hard work of the project team to deliver over and above industry standards and is measured across five categories; care about appearance, respect the community, protect the environment, secure everyone’s safety and value your workforce.
Adrian Speller, Director of Sustainability at Speller Metcalfe and heavily involved in the CCS work at Speller Metcalfe and Habberley Learning Campus explained its significance: “In 2014, Speller Metcalfe was made an Associate Member of the Considerate Constructors Scheme, demonstrating our continual commitment to delivering on best practice.
“This Gold is further evidence of how our teams on the ground work so hard to improve the image of construction and we hope that through our work and the work of our peers the perception of the industry becomes a highly positive one both to the general public and an appealing career option for the next generation.”
Speller Metcalfe also followed up their Gold win with a Bronze award for Provender Mill, a three-storey refurbishment of an existing furniture store into training and associated facilities for Worcester College of Technology (now Heart of Worcestershire College).
